I swear its all in the sauce! I have seriously turned into a bit of a fish taco snob. I don't really like to order fish tacos from restaurants anymore because it is rare that they make a good sauce! Is anyone with me on that???? However, I am a girl who adores flavor, I like my food hot and couldn't care less to eat something if it seems "dry" to me.
With that said, if you are a little like me, you might enjoy this sauce with all the flavor over hot fish tacos! Plus this is something that is really simple to do. The sauce has 5 ingredients. Warm your corn tortillas, make some fish, pico and cut thin strips of cabbage and some fresh lime wedges.
A note on the fish. You can you any type of fish for this. My boys caught strippers in Lake Powell and we made fish tacos with them and they were great. I have used tilapia, cod and whatever I can get my hand on that I feel good about. Last night I used some halibut that some friends brought us from Alaska mixed with a few of the salmon burgers from Costco. If I were cooking for a large group, especially teenage boys, I would just grab a bag of fish sticks from Costco. Not as healthy, but simple for large groups. The best part is no matter what version you choose for your fish the tacos, they always taste great.
A word about the pico. Just dice white onion, cilantro and tomatoes. Squeeze some lime and sprinkle a little garlic salt over the top and mix!
